I grew up in the United Arab Emirates, which is ruled by people (well, men) with inherited titles. In the UAE, there was no criticism at all of the rulers. And if two of them were shown on television together as part of the news, e.g. “Earlier today, His Highness Sheikh Zayed bin Rashid al Maktoum, the ruler of Dubai, met with His Highness Sheikh Saeed bin Sultan al Nahyan, the ruler of Sharjah”, the sound would be cut off completely. We weren’t allowed to hear a word they said. I could go on and on.

So compared to that, the system in the UK seems downright egalitarian.
